boehner said we're done with taxes. the president was very clear that when meeting the economic and fiscal challenges ahead, that he wants to keep in perspective whether the cop or the receptionist was able to make it. and he did contrast it with what the republicans want. and they want to cut medicare and social security. and so he said fine, let's argue this out in the public. and he clearly felt confident that he and we would win if that bat 8 takes place. >> now, the reason i'm asking, congresswoman, is "politico" is reporting that the economy is crumbling. let me quote. >> if that is true and the democratic caucus stands together and the president stands firm, they will have backed down yet again. >> exactly. you know, reverend al, that this sequester was never intended to go into effect because the cuts were so devastating. and so this, again, would be a capitulation to the democrats. >> and i think that's the real point, joan. the sequester was put out with such unreasonable cuts, it was to make sure that we never got there. and to act as though now we may have gone there is

think you can govern that way. >> how do you explain better that we're not going to give any tax increases to the rich, but we're going to let the middle class and the poor pay more we're going to let unemployment insurance run out on people that can't find work. every tax loophole in the world, we're going to leave it in place and start examining things that seniors need. i mean, how do you explain that better? >> i don't think hogan is correct about this. the core of it they lost two seats in the senate. they were trying to talk about rape and abortion and that was a conserve tiff view. marco rubio is saying you need to take an immigration deal. and the republican tea party is saying no, it's not possible, it's amnesty. you're wrong. i don't think this is purely about tone. the republican party has to move to the left. karl rove thinks that, marc marco rubio thinks that. it's not guilty aboutish issues, like you just said. when you look at, hogan, the war on women and the legislation they passed in certain states against women's right to choose, it wasn't that women were object

we can't go back to the same ideas which was deregulation which was tax cuts for the top, all of that. then they want, again, change the language as melissa says, we went from talking about stimulus to deficit. and like we could cut our way out of debt. and when you look at the comparison between private sector job growth under president obama and under george w. bush, more than 650,000 private sector jobs were lost you should bush while so far more than 470,000 private sector jobs had been added under president obama. so when you look at where we started, look at the comparison they're really trying to play with our minds. >> there's a terrific irony going on here. each month you have the republicans saying a ha, the job growth isn't as high as it should be. or saying a ha, the economy isn't growing at the pace that it should be. well, why isn't it? that's because the republicans succeeded in getting the government to cut back its spending. so the reason the jobs growth has not been higher is because just as private sector job growth is increasing, government jobs are decreasing

that tax cuts are always, always, always wrong. >> i t >>> i think that the jobs for progressives is that middle income and low income people have really been stuck in a spiral, in some ways, for 30 years. and their task is to say we can move in a different direction. we can include growth that has not only the wealthy people, people in the middle and at the bottom of the economy. i hope he is not at all shy about doing a little bit of that bill clinton thing and laying out a bunch of specific programs. all of those speeches were very specific that got panned by pundait pundits, but they were very popular with people because they said here is where i want to move the country. >> you know, angela, he also can be specific about what we're facing. the sequester. if the sequester goes in to effect, if it goes through 10%, faa would be furloughed, usda food inspectors would be furloughed, 25% coast guard operations would be cut, sup lemtal nutrition plans for 600,000 women and children would be cancelled. i mean, he can talk about the real impact of those that are trying to not meet hi

. on the issue of revenue, he isn't done raising taxes on the wealthy. >> when you look at some of these deductions that certain folks are able to take advantage of, the average person can't take advantage of them. the average person doesn't have access to cay men island accounts, the average person doesn't have access to carried interest income. we just want to make sure that the whole system is fair. that it's transparent. that we're reducing our deficit in a way that doesn't hamper growth, reduce the kinds of strategies that we need in order to make sure that we're creating good jobs and a strong middle class. >> strong middle class. make sure the system is fair. it's game on for this president. joining me now is political strategist angela rye. thank you both for being with us. >> thank you, reverend al. >> jarret, let me go to you first. tax fairness is a big part of what the president wants to get done. take a look at this. there are many middle class households that are actually paying a higher tax rate than households that make over a million dollars a year because they don

some of their special tax break. and pay their fair share. >> these modest reforms in our social insurance programs have to go hand in hand with tax reform. so the wealthiest individuals and corporations can't take advantage of loopholes and deductions that aren't available to most americans. there is no reason that the jobs of thousands of americans who work in national security or education or clean energy, not to mention the growth of the economy should be put in jeopardy just because folks in congress couldn't come together to eliminate tax loopholes. >> these special interests loopholes include subsidies for the oil and gas companies. who are raking in record profits. deductions for corporate jets and yachts. and absurd tax breaks for hedge fund managers and wall street heavy hitters. fairness. it's what this election was all about. i mean, do we really want to be a country that lets millionaires write off their corporate jets but tells a single mom she can't get help buying a formula for her baby? that's not the america we all voted for on election day. joining me now is de
